In his momentous speech, King declared that segregation was on its deathbed and that the movement had already achieved significant milestones. Although the civil rights movement had won many battles in the struggle for racial equality by the mid-1960s, including legislation to guarantee black voting rights and to desegregate public accommodations, the fight to implement the new laws was just starting. In reality, Kings speech in Montgomery represented a new beginning rather than a conclusion to the movement, a fact that King acknowledged in the address.After the Dream: Black and White Southerners since 1965 begins where many histories of the civil rights movement end, with Kings triumphant march from the iconic battleground of Selma to Montgomery.

Timothy J. Minchin and John Salmond focus on events in the South following the passage of the 1964 Civil Rights Act and the 1965 Voting Rights Act. After the Dream examines the social, economic, and political implications of these laws in the decades following their passage, discussing the empowerment of black southerners, white resistance, accommodation and acceptance, and the nations political will. The book also provides a fascinating history of the often-overlooked period of race relations during the presidential administrations of Ford, Carter, Reagan, and both George H.

W. and George W. Bush. Ending with the election of President Barack Obama, this study will influence contemporary historiography on the civil rights movement.
